>Update: I decided to check the latest git master commit to see if the
docs had changed. I found some
thing about controlling the keyboard
layout, and I found more examples in the guix-help archives. This is
the 'services' field that I ended up using:
(services (cons* (console-keymap-service "dvorak")
(slim-service-type config =>
Option \"XkbLayout\" \"dvorak\"
This successfully fixed the problem in the login manager. (GNOME, of
course, had to be configured separately.)
